We love animals, and I bet you can see that expressed in our website and the fabrics we carry. We love wild animals and domestic animals, but especially our Cats and Dogs. Personally, our family has 2 rescue kitties and 2 golden retrievers, and our kids adore our pets too.
I know many of you have the same love for your furry buddies…they hang out on your sewing table, they give puppy-dog eyes at the dinner table, they lie quietly in our laps and they race around like maniacs. And then we love them even more!
Many quilt exhibits include in the entry rules “No animal hair” because so many of us have our pets in the studio. What would we do without our Studio Cats who love to “help” by curling up on the best quilt? What would we do without our dogs, snuffling and slobbering in our scrap pile, and reminding us to get up from the sewing machine every once in awhile… to stretch and take them outside?
When you put little kids together with cute pets, especially kittens and puppies, the result is smiles all around. So I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos of Sam and Sophie when they were little, with a couple beloved pets who are now gone. The pink poodle was not ours … we met this doggie on a trip to Florida. Now ladies are dying their hair pink, instead of their poodles…ha!
If you are donating a quilt for Nepal earthquake victims, they must arrive by May 10, because the CU chapter of Engineers Without Borders is leaving May 15.
